Opinion

This weeks showering of hugs and slugss

HUGS. To the wonderful women who work at the Castlegar Airport Cafe who bought me breakfast when my debit card didn’t work. I was starving and your generosity not only filled my stomach but you made my long day so much brighter.

 

HUGS. Big hugs to all of my friends, family and students for making my 50th birthday so special. The birthday prank was very funny and I am still finding items in my yard.

 

HUGS. To the cast and crew of Jesus Christ Superstar. It’s been a blast getting to know all of you over the last few months. The next three days will only bring us together even more.

 

SLUGS. To the person who stole my iPhone from the shopping cart at Walmart in Nelson. In return I give a hug for returning it to the Kaslo RCMP detachment. A super big hug to Cpl. Shaun Begg for meeting me over halfway to get it to me. So grateful to get it back. I’m in touch now. TYSM.

 

SLUGS. Great big slugs to the young men (boys) who keep calling on blocked lines to pretend they are my grandson with grand stories about the bad accident or other problem they’ve had and of course need some money. I know what they are up to so they don’t get very far, but what about the older seniors who can’t hear properly and get roped in? I am getting these calls regularly so others must be too.

 

SLUGS. Big, lazy self-serving slugs to those business people who consistently monopolize parking spaces in the downtown core by meter plugging. With bad weather and shopping season coming maybe you could put the customers’ convenience ahead of your own.
